Satisfying digital-savvy clients with financial CRM

CRM encompasses the tools implemented for cultivating better customer relationships and interactions.

Salesforce launched its Financial Services Cloud, developed with the support of United Capital in August 2016. The launch was accompanied by a research study into investors that found that convenience, being able to have an account overview and online reviews are the most important factors in choosing a financial advisor.

4 Benefits of CRM for wealth management companies:

1. CRM helps build trust that provides a competitive advantage

Trust is an important aspect of the client / wealth manager relationship and something which CRM software is able to underpin; being able to personalize customer relationships on a large scale is a source of competitive advantage for wealth management firms.

Additionally, CRM systems facilitate the development of long-term, dynamic relationships with customers, for professionals may always look back at historic customer information, and identify trends in longstanding customer behavior to help them plot the future. Mobile, artificial intelligence (AI) and analytics capabilities are ideally suited to wealth management and its digital-savvy customer base.

Financial CRM systems are ideal for wealth managers, enabling them to track and predict evolving customer needs, identify opportunities for their clients and develop tactics accordingly, to become trusted advisors improving clients’ ability to meet their lifestyle goals.

2. Financial professionals can customize their services better with CRM technology

Wealth management is different for everybody, and is often highly unique to an individual’s situation. Because of this, a thorough understanding of the customer’s circumstances, as well as their preferences, is critical.

A properly integrated CRM system allows for personalization, enabling financial professionals to craft products and services that are individualized and perfect for each of their clients. It integrates multiple communicative aspects, providing the ultimate platform for efficient interaction. Using this system, clients’ behaviors, preferences, and activities are logged to give a clear picture of each individual.

This gives wealth management companies the ability to review and analyze each customer’s personal profile, giving them a better understanding of the customer, and thus craft ways in which to achieve what the customer wants at every stage of their life.

3. CRM gives wealth managers quick access to meaningful data

Using CRM systems, financial professionals can log and track every task, appointment, and activity. CRM keeps information located in a single, compact database, allowing for easy access and understanding. Using this data yanalytics functionality, professionals can easily measure KPIs and generate reports (“Why CRM”, 2017).

These features help firms stay on top of customer information, and deliver services in an organized and efficient manner. Ultimately, this efficient organization may help firms garner a competitive advantage, and make themselves far more attractive to potential new clients.

In addition, other benefits of CRM for wealth management companies include the ability to streamline customer profiles, assets, and investments, quickly giving professionals a holistic view of their clients’ finances whenever it is necessary.

4. Cloud-based CRM solutions allow for collaboration across the entire firm

Unlike traditional customer service systems, many CRM systems are cloud-based, meaning advisors and clients can access the system including client profile, history, documents and related financial management tools regardless of their location and on any device (“How Can”, 2017).

This enables better collaboration between advisors, and keeps the entire team updated on important client information. Not only does this improve efficiency and succession planning within organizations but it also improves client experience, important in an industry where trust is of fundamental importance.
